DETROIT (AP) — Jeimer Candelario had a go-ahead RBI bloop single during a three-run eighth inning and the Detroit Tigers rallied past the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Friday night.

Candelario was reinstated from the disabled list before the game. He dropped in what initially looked like a routine popup over first baseman Jose Abreu’s back shoulder, allowing Nicholas Castellanos to score from third and giving the Tigers their first lead of the night.

Reliever Buck Farmer (1-3) pitched a scoreless eighth inning and got the win. Shane Greene retired the side in the ninth for his 12th save.

Former Tigers pitcher Bruce Rondon (2-3) took the loss, allowing three runs on three hits in the eighth. Starter Reynaldo Lopez pitched seven strong innings, giving up two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three.

The White Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on RBI hits by Abreu and Tim Anderson. Trayce Thompson’s RBI single in the fourth made it 3-0, and following a pair of Tigers runs in the fourth, Anderson’s solo home run in the fifth extended the lead to 4-2.

Leonys Martin’s RBI single in the eighth made it 4-3 and Castellanos followed with an RBI double, advancing to third on the throw home. Martin’s slide at home was reviewed and the call stood.

Tigers starter Mike Fiers went 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on nine hits and three walks.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon took a line drive to the head in Thursday’s rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte, leaving the game in the third inning. He showed no signs of a concussion and was treated for a head laceration.

Tigers: 1B Miguel Cabrera (right hamstring strain) took batting practice and ran in the outfield before Friday’s game, saying he could return “soon” from the disabled list. He’s been out since May 4. ... Candelario (left wrist tendinitis) went 1 for 4. OF Mikie Mahtook was optioned to Triple-A Toledo to open a roster spot. ... RHP Jordan Zimmermann (right shoulder) continues making progress in his rehab and could return in the near future, Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said.

UP NEXT

White Sox: LHP Hector Santiago (0-2, 5.17 ERA) is expected to start Saturday’s game against the Tigers.

Tigers: LHP Francisco Liriano (3-1, 3.42) is scheduled to face Santiago. Liriano took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his last start.
